Welcome to Year One

We hope you enjoy visiting our Year One page which shows the wonderful learning that happens in our classrooms. Please follow us on Twitter @CanonYearOne.


Our curriculum project this term is: School Days

In the School Days project, your child will have the opportunity to take part in a traditional Victorian class and will learn about the differences between schooling in the Victorian era and schooling today. They will learn about objects found in a Victorian classroom and how they were used. They will research Samuel Wilderspin, an important figure in the development of schooling for young children in the Victorian era, whose ideals are reflected in schooling today. They will learn to describe the passage of time through study of past, present and future tense vocabulary.


Our Science project this term is: Plant Parts

In the Plant Parts project, your child will learn that plants are living things that grow from seeds or bulbs. They will revisit the concept of seasonal change, observing how trees and other plants change with the seasons, particularly from winter to spring. Your child will observe, photograph and identify various plants growing in and around the school grounds. They will choose one plant they would like to study for the project's duration. They will continue their learning by learning the parts of plants. They will explore where new plants come from and learn the names of some plants that grow from seeds and bulbs. Your child will learn about the parts of leaves, making comparisons. They will ask and answer scientific questions about the importance of plants to animals, including humans. They will observe how their chosen plant has changed over time and record their findings


In Maths this half term, we will be learning to:

  • Count in 2s, 5s and 10s
  • Recognise and make equal groups
  • Recognise a quarter or half of an object, shape or quantity
  • Describe turns and position using precise positional language 


Home Learning:

PurpleMash: Children are set weekly tasks on PurpleMash in their '2Do' folder. Please help your child to log on at home as this is aligned to learning that they have covered in the classroom and will support their progress further.  

Home Learning Project: We ask children to choose to complete a home learning project linked to their curriculum project being studied. Home learning projects provide a fun and creative opportunity for children to practise and apply new skills, as well as express their knowledge in a topic area.
